Yes singles part 4 – Fragile – 317

Fragile
Fragile produced just one single – Roundabout

Produced by Robert Nasir, Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier and Bill Govier.

Fragile elevated the band further than ever before. Rick Wakeman joined and Roger Dean provided the iconic artwork. The single was Roundabout – perhaps ‘the’ classic song. We also have a 2 pence about ARW’s plans for a huge 50th Anniversary concert…

  • How does the edited version of Roundabout work?
  • What does Rick Wakeman add?
  • No UK single?

The Steve Howe Album
The Steve Howe Album

Produced by Preston Frazier, David Gordon, Bill Govier, Wayne Hall and Michel Arsenault.

We finish off listening to The Steve Howe Album this week and there’s a bit of a difference of opinion about it! The two pence segment is about the news that Billy Sherwood is working on a new Yes live album and Mark reviews Trevor Rabin’s solo outing, ‘Wolf’. Plenty to get your teeth into…

  • Is side two as good as side one?
  • How do the orchestral arrangements work?
  • Who is this Vivaldi bloke anyway?
